VICE: “Sweet Home Alabama” / “Haitian Money Pit”

VICE: “Sweet Home Alabama” / “Haitian Money Pit”

  Overview: “Sweet Home Alabama” – In 2011, Alabama passed one of the harshest anti-immigrant laws in U.S. history. Based on the hardline policy known as “self-deportation,” Alabama’s HB-56 aimed to make life so miserable for illegal immigrants that they’d opt to leave the state on their own. The law granted police unprecedented powers to arrest, question and detain suspected illegal immigrants, and even criminalized citizens who provided undocumented workers with jobs, housing or transportation. But if the climate of hostility it created may have forced thousands of immigrants to flee, it may have also done real damage...

Movie Review: Godzilla

Movie Review: Godzilla

Let’s face it, when we heard that Godzilla was being remade again we all released a great big eye-rolling sigh of despair. Despite the following it has garnered from its deepest, darkest fans who revel in its comic books, TV shows and low budget movies of time gone by, Hollywood has continually proved that by throwing wads of cash at a poorly written script won’t exactly create a historic piece of cinematic excellence. Until they allow Gareth Edwards to take the helm that is. You know the story, it’s about as formulaic as you can get when it comes to monster pics so if you don’t know it I am sure you could guess it. That is not...

Wright Brothers Miniseries Takes Flight for HBO

  Playtone Productions the longstanding production house with HBO content, like BAND OF BROTHERS and JOHN ADAMS, has another miniseries planned for the network. It will focus on the story of Wilber and Orville Wright and their place in aviation history.

In Production: The Rebooted THE LEFTOVERS Season Two

In Production: The Rebooted THE LEFTOVERS Season Two

The last we heard about THE LEFTOVERS there was rumbling of big changes in its sophomore season. Back on 10.13.14 we heard from showrunner Damon Lindelof himself about potential changes since they are now beyond the source novel. Then on 12.06.14 we learned that many of the supporting cast would not continue into another year. Those following the show have now heard the buzz that Season Two is a reboot. That’s right – after The Guilty Remnant dropped the emotionally damaging bomb on Mapleton nothing would ever be the same there. The Garvey’s, seemingly altogether, will leave their home and citizens behind. That accounts for...

Reminder: HBO Now’s Apple Exclusivity is Temporary

Reminder: HBO Now’s Apple Exclusivity is Temporary

There’s been some confusion around the launch of HBO Now, HBO’s first ever stand-alone streaming service. And who can blame people for being confused? Between HBO Go and HBO Now it’s tough to know the differences.  Top that off with the fact that HBO limited the release to Apple devices only at launch and you’ve got a very complicated situation for non-technical people to try and wrap their heads around. So we wanted to at least dispel one of the more sinister rumors– that HBO Now will always require an Apple device.  Here’s a clip from HBO Now’s official FAQ page: So you’ll need an iOS...

Silicon Valley: “Runaway Devaluation”

Silicon Valley: “Runaway Devaluation”

If it had not been evident already, “Runaway Devaluation” made it crystal clear just how difficult Pied Piper’s route to success is going to be. Not only are they dealing with a lawsuit that could cost them over two million dollars to fight, but all the investors who seemed so keen on supporting Pied Piper in the previous episode, have now gotten cold feet. From the start of the episode I knew that “Runaway Devaluation” was going to be quite an entertaining one considering that the episode began in the office of Richard’s hilarious and unconventional “lawyer.” While Richard is struggling to comprehend the fact that this...

SAVING MY TOMORROW Part 3 Airs Earth Day 2015

Game of Thrones: “The House of Black and White”

Game of Thrones: “The House of Black and White”

After a highly politically-fueled season premiere, Game of Thrones went back to its mysterious, frustrating, and darkly violent roots in this season’s second episode. “The House of Black and White” is not only the name of the location to which Arya (Thank the old gods and the new, she’s back!) is traveling to in Braavos, but also the title of the episode which runs as a metaphorical theme throughout the events that occur. These representations become clear as the episode kicks off with Arya. As many will recall, season 4 ended with Arya sailing to Bravvos in search of Jaqen H’ghar. After having sailed the Narrow Sea, she finally...

HBONow – A Promo Collection

HBONow – A Promo Collection

    HBONow is up and running and it didn’t even crash when GAME OF THRONES debuted on the 12th. Of course, more and more providers will sign on when the exclusivity period for Apple runs out. The marketing push for the new streaming site has been everywhere. All print ads now mention the newer site instead of HBOGo and there are banner ads showing up on the Web. HBO has also generated what seems to be an endless run of video clips promoting HBONow and some of them seem pretty clever. In this post we just scratch the surface of some of those video clips starting with the one calling out Jake Caputo –  the guy who’d pay...

VICE: “The Post-Antibiotic World” / “Indonesia’s Palm Bomb”

  Overview: It is a scary world and on top of it all we face “The Post-Antibiotic World.” We rely on antibiotics to treat everything from stomach bugs to skin rashes to bronchitis. In fact, we’ve been overusing them, which has produced a new crop of dangerous bacterial infections that can’t be treated by something from the pharmacy. The more we use antibiotics, the more these superbugs build up their resistance. It’s an evolutionary battle, and the humans are losing. The projections are dire: According to some experts, antibiotic-resistant bacteria could kill ten million people a year by 2050, surpassing cancer...

Silicon Valley Season 2 Premiere: “Sand Hill Shuffle”

Silicon Valley Season 2 Premiere: “Sand Hill Shuffle”

Your favorite tech geeks are back! And while the end of the last season seemed to mark a turn in fortune for this lovable yet awkward group of guys, the season 2 premiere made it evident that despite Pied Pipers success at Tech Crunch Disrupt, not much has changed. Mike Judge does a terrific job of reminding us of all the awkward quirks and tendencies that each member of Pied Piper has when he starts off the episode with the Pied Piper team at a reception hosted at the Giants stadium. Erlich is still obsessed with himself and his abilities to network, Gilfoyle and Dinesh still find themselves getting in competitive arguments, and Richard is...
